Hello Community,

some years ago, I set up a firefox sync account to sync my bookmarks. Now I'm back to firefox and I'm able to login into the old account - but it seems there's nothing stored, that I have synced at that time :-o ?

Hello,

I am wondering if there is a way to access my firefox account's saved ("sync" enabled) bookmarks from a generic web page -- such as from a computer/device that does not have firefox installed (and for which installing is not an option).

I came across this item: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1053133 and noticed that it is five years old.

So I am wondering if the behavior and/or options have changed since that time.

Thank you for any help!

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

When I go to my home page the browser's back button becomes inactive and I cannot use it to go back whence I came, i.e. the page on which I was when I clicked the home button.

I noticed that there are several situations when the back button suddenly decides to become inactive and I cannot go back with it, but this is one case that I can remember and can reproduce.

It is rather annoying as I was used from previous browsers (Safari, I am sure) that I could go back every time using the back button (unless the page forwards a hundred times and tricks the back button).

Any ideas?

I just updated to Firefox 80 (at Mozilla's insistence) and now all my Bookmarks and Bookmark Toolbar are missing. How do I get them back? Or revert back to Firefox 79 where I had them? How do I stop Mozilla's insistent pop-up when there is a new version - such as this destructive version 80? Bill Gray

My Firefox wouldn't load, so I looked and apparently you have to uninstall/reinstall. I did that, but now my old bookmarks/profile cannot be loaded.

I get a message stating "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

Can anyone help? I have years and years of bookmarks I need access to!

Thank you.

Merhaba. Bilgisayarıma format attım. Daha sonra Mozilla kurulumunu yaptım ve Mozilla hesabıma giriş yaptım. Daha sonra senkronizasyon işlemini yaptı. Ama eski verileri getirmek yerine yeni, sıfır Mozilladaki verileri eski verilerin üzerine yazdı. Senelerdir bu hesabı kullanıyorum ve maalesef yedekleri yok. Çünkü senkronizasyonda başıma hiçbir zaman böyle bir şey gelmedi. Eski verilerime nasıl ulaşabilirim?

Well, it works on search suggestions, but does not work on history, bookmarks, urls, etc. If i use new clean profile, address bar works normally, so it may be some error in my profile. But as you can see from third screenshot, suggestion on history is enabled, so I don't know how to fix this.

Hello,

I have for now a work flow where I share my bookmarks between different firefox profiles, without any acces to web/net/cloud/whatever..., all is local to my computer. This works well with an old firefox version. But, because there is a but. I'm blocked in this situation. My firefox version is 60.9.0esr. I can't go higher because starting with firefox version 62, there where changes that prevent concurrent access to sqlite databases.

I did some search in addons to try to find an alternative, without success. I also already done a research in previous support questions, without success too.

So, maybe someone have an idea or suggestion, to help me achieve that, or something similar, with newer firefox version. I need to upgrade to something more up to date.

Thanks in advance, K.

Hello.

Is there any way to set one of my own (self-created) bookmark folders as the default folder for saving my bookmarks? It seems that Firefox only allows its own system folders to be used as the default. And I always have to manually change the location before bookmarking anything. But maybe I'm overlooking a simple solution to this issue.

Thank you for the assistance. I appreciate it. Brian in Alaska
